If you own a pair of plain white sneakers and don’t use them anymore because they are very hard to clean, well you got lucky today! What I want to share with you is how to make that pair of sneakers waterproof ,which would lessen the dirt accumulation. Also, I have some tips on how to clean your white sneakers in simple easy steps!
First, let’s make your shoes waterproof. You’ll need some candles and make sure you get pretty white candles as you don’t want the color to transfer on your sneakers. You’ll also need a hot hair blower and that’s it. You’re ready to make your shoes waterproof.
So what you have to do is coat the shoes with candle wax. It’s just easy. You just need to brush the candle until all the parts of your sneakers are covered. Then, get the blower and heat the candle wax slowly.
You will notice that the candle will bind to the fabric of your shoes, which will actually act as a barrier to water and some dirt. Once all wax has been heated, wait for a couple of minutes and try it on! You’ll be amazed to see that it will no longer soak in water.
However, you also need to make sure that your sneakers are pretty clean before coating it with candle wax. Don’t worry because it will only take a toothpaste and a brush to clean your sneakers. Just put a small amount of Colgate on your shoes and spread it using a toothbrush or any brush you have.
When you are done brushing, let the toothpaste dry for 15 minutes then rinse with water. You will see your sneakers will be white and much cleaner. Just like new again!
